October Scarefest Day 16 Part 1: Quite enjoy watching the short films that inspire full feature length horrors: • - Lights Out will increase your electricity bill substantially. David Sandberg's short, that inspired the feature film of the same title, is effective because of one element. It turns a common fear into a nightmarish experience. Being frightened of darkness is a phobia that keeps people awake at night. For Sandberg to utilise this psychological detriment and craft a decent three minute film is quite impressive. Naturally the acting is mediocre and the directing style lacks imagination. However, it's the demonic entity residing in the shadows that truly increases your heart rate. The flickering of the light switch, making the demon disappear and reappear instantaneously, exhumed innovation. You just know it's going to move closer with each flick of the switch, as your breathing quickens whilst you wait for the inevitable. Obviously the best line of defence is hiding under the duvet (really...) and its at that precise moment where the excellent sound editing kicks in. The absurdly creaky floorboards as you hear the demon walk, suddenly turning into a light run towards the bedroom. The most effective scares are those that the viewer cannot see, leaving it to their imagination to induce fear. The final shot somewhat loses the tension, but the outstanding use of lighting and conceptualised fear makes this a memorable short. Thank God we got a full length feature film! • Lights Out = 6/10 • #youtube #watch #online #video #film #movie #review #lights #out #dark #horror #scary #switch #bedroom #lamp #fear #movieaddict #cinephile #critic #filmbuff #tuesday #short #demon #creak #apartment #davidsandberg #shadow

With an infectious charm that’s hard to resist, 'The Old Man & the Gun' is a fitting farewell to one of the most endearing actors of our time. Check out my full ★★★1/2☆☆ review at the link in my bio!

. Whiplash (2014) • directed and written by Damien Chazelle • starring Miles Teller and J. K. Simmons • cinematography by Sharone Meir –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Four years ago, I was sitting in a local theatre, left speechless of how incredible this movie was, not only by the incredible editing and the great performances of its leads Miles Teller and J. K. Simmons, but also and especially by its exceptional final scene, which still holds up as one of the greatest endings in my opinion. 10/10 #Whiplash 🥁 ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
Gurgaon is one Dark and gritty film. The whole scenario in the film is so much atmospheric and thrilling, it feels like you stay in that scene the violence felt so real. Gurgaon is a story about one family but that family itself represents the horror of that city where the nitty-gritty of violence take place for money. Coming back to the family, every father wants his son not to be like him, in this scenario its so true, father was a murderer and his son follow his step while could not do anything.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #drama #film #cinema #filisnotdead #filmmaking #films #filmforeever #filmography #filmcrew #filmmakerslife #filmlife #filmfeed #filmbuff #filmlover #movies #moviescenes #moviestowatch #moviestills #bollywoodmovies #cinematography #cinema #cinematographer #cinemalover #murder #thriller

Hounds Of Love {2016} 📽📝 Ben Young ✨ Emma Booth, Ashleigh Cummings, Stephen Curry ————————————————————— Aussie film inspired by true events, about a couple who kidnap young girls in the 80’s. I’ve seen a doco on this story, and this is a really well made version of it. There are some differences (especially the end), but what Ben Young has done here really works well. . ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ {8/10} ——————————————————————— . . . . . . #movies #films #intamovies #intalove #video #cinema #cinephile #moviebuff #movieaddict #filmbuff #filmnight #movietime #moviereview #filmreview #horror #houndsoflove #aussie #australian #bluray #dvd #hulu

MOVIE REVIEW: First Man - #Repost @averagejoereviews ・・・ First Man (2018) Director: Damien Chazelle Main Cast: Ryan Gosling, Claire Foy, Jason Clarke Distributor: Universal Pictures Rating: PG-13 Genre: Drama This space film chronicles the space race in the 1960s. It shows how Neil Armstrong became just an ordinary guy to becoming the first man on the moon. Space travel is not easy and First Man shows how many struggles NASA faced before they landed in '69. The movie is well written, acted, and directed. Damien Chazelle teams up with Ryan Gosling for a second time, and once again gives us a really good movie. The audience feels like they're there too. The visuals are also out of this world (pun intended). Some of the shots and cinematography are beautiful. Ryan Gosling and Claire Foy both do well with thier respective roles but not great enough that others couldn't possibly do it better. The film is entertaining and well made but also is a little long and has some slower moments. All in all, First Man is a great film and probably one of the best films of the year so far.

Back for another #31daysofhorror / #31daysofhorrormovies - Day 15: #suspiria (1977). This #beautiful and #colorful Italian #classic by director #darioargento is a bit of a slow burn, but with each frame, you can’t help but to admire everything you’re watching. While not the most exciting #horror flick out there, it is quite the story that unfolds about an American dancer attending a European dance academy with strange things happening only to discover an evil witch is behind it all. #31daysofhalloween #halloween #gayhorrorfan #instahorror #gaygeek #gaydude #geek #instagay #instageek #filmbuff #bluraycollection #filmgeek #instafilm #witches #igdaily #film #cinematography #70s

💥Happy 25th Anniversary 💥 . . 🎬 'Judgement Night' . . 💥Trivia: One of several movies filmed in and around Chicago, at the same time('The Fugitive' & 'Excessive Force'). . . 💥Trivia: Emilio Estevez asked for and received $4 million to star in the film. He was able to get a much larger payday than anyone expected because he was available at a point where the film needed to either go into production or have the plug pulled, and they had spent more than twice that $4 million figure on pre-production which would have been lost for good if he hadn't taken the lead role. . . ✔My Rating: ☆☆☆ out of ☆☆☆☆☆ . . . . . . #eblock #movies #film #television #judgementnight #emilioestevez #cubagoodingjr #jeremypiven #denisleary #1993 #thriller #chicago #chitown #underrated #25thanniversary #cinephilecommunity #cinephile #cinema #moviegeek #movienerd #filmbuff #moviebuff #movietrivia #sigmon7cinema #movieaddict
🎥 GOLDEN EXITS • 2018 • Directed by Alex Ross Perry • USA • Drama 🍅RT: 67% 🔶MetaCritic: 71 IN A SENTENCE: Just as he did with The Color Wheel (2011) and Queen Of Earth (2015), Perry proves himself an uncanny maker of movies seductively sneaky, fascinating, and small. REVIEW: When Naomi, a beautiful young Australian, comes to The Big Apple to intern with a neurotic archivist, Nick, her stay becomes the lynch-pin of Perry’s narrative, an unsentimental and uncomfortable probe into the navel-gazing, garden-variety narcissism of what I choose to call the minor privileged —not one percenters, for sure, but just uppity enough to even have the luxury of this brand of introspection. It calls to mind the earlier dramas of Woody Allen but without any of Allen’s rough-edge buffing. Though GOLDEN EXITS may be an indisputably sour cinematic cocktail, I found it anything but unlikeable. Smartly (but never overly) written, Perry’s dialogue feels high-minded and literary, excellently rendered by a marvelous cast, each establishing a clear self-portrait for the viewer. Nick, played by Adam Horovitz, is an unforgettable schmuck and his wife (Chloe Sevigny) the very definition of a soul on ice. But my easy favorite here is Mary-Louise Parker as Nick’s sister-in-law, Gwendolyn. She is a hissing, quietly hysterical thing that injects GOLDEN EXITS with acid comedy. While a much quieter film than his Queen Of Earth, Perry proves himself here to be more than a fluke. He is one of our most promising young filmmakers, utterly American and bruised by class. The critical reaction to GOLDEN EXITS has been underwhelming, yet I am all but certain that time will shift this consensus. 🔲 #bobksmoviemania #reviews #moviereviews #movies #film #cinema #cinephile #cinephilecommunity #filmcommunity #filmbuff #filmcritic #culture #culturalcritic #whattowatch #GoldenExits #AlexRossPerry #drama #EmilyBrowning #AdamHorovitz #ChloeSevigny #MaryLouiseParker #USA #NYC #thesufferingoftheminorprivileged #marriage #millenial #familyromance #indiscretion

(513) Much of New York, New York (1977) was shot on the same soundstages as the great musicals of the 1940s. As a result, Liza Minnelli was haunted by memories of her mother, Judy Garland, throughout the shoot. #movietrivia #films #filmtrivia #filmfacts #cinema #filmhistory #historyofcinema #cinephile #filmophile #filmophilia #didyouknowmovies #didyouknow #cinemagram #instamovies #filmbuff #movies #moviefacts #1977 #newyorknewyork #musicalfilm #dramafilm #musicaldrama #martinscorsese #mardikmartin #earlmacrauch #robertdeniro #lizaminnelli #lionelstander #barryprimus #marykayplace

Here’s @jeremy_perez ’s review for First Man: #FirstMan may not be my favorite movie of 2018, but it is the best made film of 2018 so far. On a technical level this film is astonishing. The way each shot is lit in cool colors gives this film an iconic look. The majority of this film was captured in 16, 35 and 65 mm, which gives it the grainy 60’s look, and it’s absolutely beautiful to see with the cool color aesthetic. However in the final mission it goes from film cameras to an IMAX camera(digital), and it is accompanied with exceptional sound design to make this a truly memorable scene. The majority of the performances were great, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see Ryan Gosling (Neil Armstrong) and Claire Foy (Janet Armstrong) getting nominations for their performances. I’d also bet on Damien Chazelle getting another Oscar nomination for best director, and as of right now is my front runner to win it. However, for as much as First Man is an amazing feat in filmmaking, there was something that just didn’t click for me. Chazelle is one of, if not my favorite working director right now, and this is because of his last two films; La La Land and Whiplash, he wrote and directed them. For this film Josh Singer wrote the script, and I feel that this was the weakest part of the film. If Chazelle wrote the script instead of just directing, it would’ve had the same pizazz that his other films had. With stronger dialogue, I would’ve went from strongly liking First Man to loving it. I give First Man an 8.7/10. Do yourself a favor and watch this film on the big screen, many shots are breathtaking!
'Hypothermia' Micro-Review: The creature effects in 'Hypothermia' are pretty bad, but the performances are actually fairly solid. It's a horror movie with an absurd premise and plenty of opportunities where the characters could have escaped, but didn't thanks to good old horror movie stupidity. Then again, it wouldn't be half as fun if the characters actually did the smart thing.⠀ ⠀ #Hypothermia #nowwatching #horror #moviebuff #movie #film #cinema #🎥 #filmlover #movieaddict #cinephilecommunity #instacinema #filmbuff #filmreview #moviefan #moviegeek #moviereviews #currentlywatching #lovemovies #movienerd #filmgeek #moviejunkie #movie 🎥 #filmreviews #movies 🎬 #movieblogger #microreview #moviereview #whattowatch #starsandpopcorn

Bodyguard, the best British show on TV now. #mipcom2018
Time to break out more classic horror. Film 15 on my #roadtohalloween was #theshining which theme is #horror #drama . #stephenking is famously critical of this adaptation of his book by #stanleykubrick . He certainly did not like the choice of lead actors and thought #jacknicholson portrayal was already an unhinged character before the Hotel took over his mind. I however love the job that him and #shelleyduvall did. Nicholson is at his insane best here and his improvised #heresjohnny quote will be embedded in horror legend for a long time. Shelley Duvall was famously bullied and isolated by Kubrick to get the performance she produced which must have been the most torrid time in filming ever, especially with Kubrick being notorious for doing so many takes to perfect his film. The directing and visuals capture the haunting masterfully and the stedicam shots following Danny rolling down the corridors only to see the twin girls at the end of it is so iconic. An immortal classic of a film 10/10 from me.

BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE - Mystery | Thriller 1️⃣5️⃣ 🚫NO SPOILERS🚫 🎬 Seven strangers, each with a secret to bury, meet at Lake Tahoe's El Royale, a rundown hotel with a dark past. 🏩 Bad Times At The El Royale is marvellous to behold, the setting, the characters and the soundtrack are winners through and through. The neon Nevada glow reminiscent of the Vegas strip dapples every shot in chintzy wonderment, contrasted against the dark subject matter unfolding. 🎼 Cynthia Erivo performs her vocal gymnastics throughout, serenading you with hits from the period. Jeff Bridges, Jon Hamm and Dakota Johnson all put in a good shift, but the real star is Chris Hemsworth as the antagonist. Touches of David Koresh inspired lunacy and cultist spirituality are toyed with and Hemsworth despatches the dark tonality very well indeed, occasionally uncomfortably funny. 🔪 The plot unravels at a steady pace for a mystery thriller, key unveiling’s creating teasing peaks. However with peaks come troughs and there are a few slow areas that can cause a bit of mental drifting that is a little detaching but these are few and far between. 🎰 Overall a cracking trip and you will be entertained. It’s a dark ride through the El Royale‘s plot so bring some mental fortitude as it dabbles in some heavy stuff. . 🎈🎈🎈🎈 4/5 . #badtimesattheelroyale #jeffbridges #chrishemsworth #dakotajohnson #moviereview #movies #movie #film #filmreview #cinema #kilmflub #ilovefilm #movielover #filmbuff #cinephile #moviebuff #movietime #movienight #instamovies #cinemalovers #movieblog #moviegram
